    Is the plant indoors or outside? The RHS recommends putting them outside during the summer and bringing them in during the winter, and they need a lot of feeding during the summer months.

  • Depending on your location, Citrus can remain outside all year round but do require protection from heavy and/or prolonged frosts - if in a pot as opposed to in the ground, waterlogging could be a problem.

    An unheated G/H would be another option.  They are rarely happy indoors in the winter - too dry an atmosphere usually.

  • Thank you perhaps to dry it does get very hot where it is situated.
